    I find 'Spideman' to be very strange.

    As films in general they're very good, especially for the genre - far more intelligent and with more depth than the norm. And wrapped up in a more teen-friendly package than 'Batman Begins', too.

    But the thing I don't like about 'Spiderman' is Spiderman. Specifically when he's swinging. It look very, very fake, cartoony, and jarring with the rest of the films visuals and otherwise realistic special effects.

    I'm sure they'll be good demos for high def, though.

    iv'e seen spiderman 3(cousin works for a film company).

    i liked the first to and thought what a triology for blu-ray.

    and why im looking forward to the first two ,spiderman 3 is a pile of poo.

    it really is a waste of space complete rubbish.

    hope this hasn't disapointed the hype but dont waste your money

    I have been out in Flordida for 4 weeks on business and checked the local Best Buy yesterday. Annoyingly they didn't have these Demo discs in yet. And no Planet Earth either, I was getting all ready to try and get them to price match Target.com as well. I seem to have gotten unlucky with the local best buy and I head back to the UK in a few days as well.

    Fair enough, although from the reviews posted so far, it would appear that the majority of critics disagree with your verdict...

    http://uk.rottentomatoes.com/m/spiderman_3/

    As for the demo disc, apparantly it's Region A only and therefore wont play on the UK PS3.

    Spiderman is a Sony title so absolutely no chance for a HD-DVD release.

    There will come a time when people will look at the titles first and format second.:)

    I thought "great sentence" meaning you thought this was good, then I saw your sig and noticed you haven't changed in the least. You should work for Sony:rolleyes:

    Underworld had a differnet distrbution company in europe.
    just like the prestige did.
    Unfortunaltly i'm sure sony films would have done he distrobution world wide for something like spider-man

    I agree. Anyway, my comment was to point out that a so called Blu-ray exclusives may not be as exclusive as some people like to holler!

    But that aside, Spiderman 3 in hi-def should be quite a visual feast! :)

    Spiderman Movie is actually owned by Sony so wont be on HD DVD. I personally dont think there will be a winner in the HD war. I dont think that Sony will release on HD DVD. Blu ray is easily as good as HD DVD (except the early films). It will just be a case of everyone buying hybrid players.

    I only had a quick look when i got it earlier, but from what i could tell it has 3 Spider-Man 3 trailers/teaser trailers, a 'sneak-peak' at S3, a trailer for Spider-Man 1 & 2 and a Blu-Ray trailer. I'll have a proper look and report back later. :)

    Reviews of this one have been pretty disappointing. Mark Kermode described it a "shambles". I think they've tried to throw in too many villains. They should have left it to Venom.

    Still, no doubt it will make loads of cash! ;)

    Saw this on Friday and thought:

    Too much action and not enough narrative story-telling (like Spider-Man 2) to give it sole and depth.
    As a result it's all too much to take in and things happen very fast with little or no development. And some things just happen with no justification.

    Not smooth storytelling like SM2 at all. (which I though was damm perfect)
    Hopefully, the BD or DVD version is extended by upto an hour!

    Still the Special-Effects are mind-blowing! :clap:
